Gloria is an Account Executive with Hemisphere Educational Travel.

What is your favorite part about your job?

Providing students with the opportunity to experience a destination they may not have been able to see otherwise.

Where is your favorite destination?

My favorite travel destination, thus far, is Iceland.

What’s your most treasured travel memory, or the best thing you’ve learned while traveling? 

My most treasured travel memory is a tie between staying with my host family in the Czech Republic and feeding my team of dogs each night while I was dogsledding in Canada!

What is the best thing you have eaten while traveling? 

Strangely enough, Iceland is known for their hotdogs and let me tell you, they are definitely worth the hype. Best hotdog ever!

If you were stranded in an airport, what three things would you want with you?  

A book, my phone and some headphones.

What’s one thing you would recommend every student group do while traveling?

Don’t overlook the local restaurants. I think eating at a spot that is important to the city, as opposed to a chain restaurant, really enhances the tour!

What destination on your bucket list do you most want to visit? 

I have been wanting to make my way to Greece for a while!

What’s your favorite activity while traveling, or something you’ve always wanted to try?

My favorite activity while traveling is meeting the locals and having them show me around! They always know the best spots.

What do you love about travel?

I love that travel provides an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and broaden your perspective.
